I'm always wondering why Victoria can't bring itself to do neighbourhood developments like this one....
In my opinion this sort of effect would be perfect for the Fairfield church redevelopment or the Bowker project. You know that neighbourhood-style & neighbourhood-scale brick-and-mortar character that these properties used to have? They can still have that same feel even with a new development. New developments in the neighbourhoods don't need to turn things upside down, is my point. Heck, new developments in the neighbourhoods shouldn't turn things upside down. Why is doing more of the same good stuff never good enough in Victoria? Not only is it never good enough, it's never even considered.
There's nothing really faux about this place. It's just a unique little building with big windows and brick cladding. You know, the sort of building that tends to define a neighbourhood's old commercial area or its main corner.
